Construction on a new marina in Seabeck, Wash., was halted just a week after it began when the state's Department of Natural Resources informed developers that the lease to build on the state-owned land had expired.

The state says it would like to work with the developers, but the problem isn't easy to fix because of an existing lease to use state-owned bedlands, or land below the low-tide mark, that the developers bought along with the marine property in 2004.
